This web page displays notes of the pertinent passages of this 48-page document, which comprises the Sharing Agreement between the VA and Brentwood School, along with snippets of certain pages.
$1 million general liability “combined single limit for bodily injury.”
No limit on Brentwood School coverage required for VA personnel on shared property.
VA held harmless for Brentwood School “wrongful or negligent conduct.”
This agreement was signed by Brentwood School’s Don Winter and the VA’s Ralph Tillman as the following snippet shows as well.
“I think that there were people in the community, I guess, that apparently made it their business to know the history of the VA and so on,” Don Winter, noted above, said in a November 28, 2005 interview with EnviroReporter.com. “They heard we were thinking about the project and they, I don’t remember their name. I do know that when we were informed about this, we raised questions about it as we were thinking about the possibility of having a sharing agreement that we didn’t want to get in a situation that would in any way jeopardize the students and participants on the fields. So as I recall now – we raised the question with the VA people and were informed about the location of the radioactive material. And because it’s so well known as to its location, it’s not underneath the athletic complex that we built. Maybe [the VA] just got confused.”
